Wilfred Ndidi’s late equaliser rescued a point for Leicester against a West Ham side, which battled valiantly with 10 men after captain, Mark Noble, was issued a red card.

Fabian Balbuena’s first half goal for West Ham looked like it would be enough for victory, but Ndidi struck in the 89th minute to leave the match all squared.

Liverpool moved back to the top of the Premier League as they beat Cardiff City 4-1. Sadio Mane scored twice and Mohamed Salah and substitute Xherdan Shaqiri were also on target for Jurgen Klopp’s side, with Callum Paterson scoring for the visitors.The Reds are three points clear of second-placed Manchester City, who can return to the top on goal difference if they win at Tottenham tomorrow.

Roberto Pereyra scored a goal of the season contender for Watford, as they beat Huddersfield 3-0, a result, which means the Terriers drop to the bottom of the table.

Starting on the touchline, the Argentine dribbled his way through several defenders for the opening goal, before Gerard Deulofeu scored a sublime second and Isaac Success added a third.

Bournemouth maintained their strong start to the season with a 3-0 victory at 10-man Fulham.Callum Wilson was on target twice – either side of David Brooks’ goal – while the Cottagers had Kevin McDonald sent off for two bookings with just under 20 minutes remaining.
